Wests Tigers: Contenders or pretenders in 2012?

10 Jul 2012

A couple of weeks ago there was a school of thought that the NRL top eight had pretty much been decided and that those teams currently in the top half of the table were simply fighting it out for position. I don’t necessarily agree with that – over the past few seasons there’s been a […]

Who actually owns the NRL rule book?

30 May 2012

State of Origin has highlighted the crisis that the NRL has on its hands at the moments around the officiating of the game. From referees to rule makers there is a genuine problem that the NRL needs to address. Forget whether you think Inglis’s try was or wasn’t a try for a moment – let’s […]

The Roosters, who can’t make the semis, […]

A Test XI with a difference: the Ians XI

8 Jan 2011

Spiro’s article yesterday mentioned a number of Ians: Botham, Chappell and Bell. This had me thinking, that “the Ians” would have a pretty handy first Test XI. I’ve put together the following team: Ian Redpath – Opening batsman of the 1960s and ’70s. Played 66 Tests over a 12-year career. Test average of 43 with […]
